Mother's Day

Don't Forget Mother’s Day- Sunday March 26th

Mothering Sunday is a Christian celebration, which we celebrate exactly three weeks before Easter Sunday.

Mothering Sunday was originally a day for servants to go to their hometown and worship in their local church, with their families

It was originally a day for Christians to visit their ‘mother’ church.

Traditionally, domestic servants were given the day off to return to their hometown and worship with their families.

On their way home, these youths would pick wild flowers to place in the church – or give to their mums.

The day has since evolved into an occasion for kids to honour and give presents to their hardworking mums, and has lost a lot of its religious meaning.
